Private Equity Dashboards

Metrics usually tracked for Private Equity

Private Equity is an important Asset Class for our customers. Typically the following metrics are tracked

Internal Rate of Return (IRR)

IRR, the performance metric of choice in the PE industry, represents the discount rate that renders the net present value (NPV) of a series of investments zero. IRR reflects the performance of a private equity fund by taking into account the size and timing of its cash flows (capital calls and distributions) and its net asset value at the time of the calculation.

Distributed to Paid-In Ratio (DPI)

It represents the amount of capital returned to investors divided by a fund’s capital calls at the valuation date. DPI reflects the realized, cash-on- cash returns generated by its investments at the valuation date

Total Value to Paid-In Ratio (TVPI)

It represents the amount of capital returned to investors + a fair value of the stakes that the fund still holds in its portfolio companies, divided by a fund’s capital calls at the valuation date. TVPI reflects the total (i.e. realized and unrealized) returns generated by its investments at the valuation date

Kaplan Schoar Public Market Equivalent (KS-PME)

The Kaplan Schoar PME measures the wealth multiple effect of investing in the PE fund versus the index. It represents the market-adjusted equivalent to the traditional TVPI. A value greater than 1 implies that the fund outperformed the public benchmark

The index used for this analysis is user configurable. It can be any public index (e.g. S&P 500 or EuroStoxx 50), any particular fund or model portfolio or even a blend (e.g. 60% S&P 500 and 40% Barclays Agg)

Direct Alpha

Same methodology as KS-PME, except the underperformance/outperformance is expressed as a percentage instead of a multiple
